This Week on The Web | Our Picks

Friday! We missed you all week! To celebrate this holy day, let's waste some time on the clock counting down everything that happened this week. Well, almost everything (election . . . what?).

Ben Affleck has been announced as the next Batman, and, right on cue, everyone on Twitter went nuts. Will he be great (like, Good-Will-Hunting great)? Will it be like that time he was in Gigli? What will Christian Bale say if he blows it?

Style Rookie, Tavi Gevinson came to Aus' recently, and was so adorable she quickly became the new preferred Prime Minister.

Confirming what we already knew instinctively, single men don't change their sheets often enough. Mmm, how appealing.

Bog snorkelling, it's a thing. (We mean the Scottish kind, you dirty-minded person.)

The first few mins of Carine Roitfeld's new docco, Mademoiselle C, have been released. Le sigh, we wish we were French.  

The Data Pack have released an incomplete list of Hashtags that are banned on Instagram. Notable mentions include #bubblebutts and #bitchcanigetacosmo. It's nice to know someone is looking out for our eyeballs.

Because 11PM is starting to feel a lot like 5AM, Buzz Feed are right on the money as they count down 25 things that get harder after the age of 25.

A wrap up of this week wouldn't be complete without the complete low-down on the 'Viley' Cyrus drama. In case you've been under a rock, Miley and Robin Thicke performed Thicke's hit, 'Blurred Lines' together at the VMA's, and Miley scared the hell out of everyone. This image of the Smith family's reactions went viral, only to be debunked later (they were actually freaking over Lady Gaga).

Some are claiming this sudden demise into freakishness shouldn't have been such a shock. The Onion predicted this would happen way back in 2008 (it's like they've got ESPN or something?).
